Heavy Rain and Today COVID

Still on the porch. Ahava has a babysitter

named Blake who goes to a local

high school.  She wants to be a doctor

one day because everyone in her family

is a nurse.  And then there’s Chapter Seven

of my interminable book.  Today is a day

for banana bread or sour cream loaf for lentil soup

a long Italian movie today is a day to finish the Lily King

novel and be grateful again and again for this porch

this rain this day.


Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.


  1. Esther,
    I love these wise, honest, and slice of life poems. They help keep perspective and make me smile.
